and brought him back. he is executed in 2004. how about the united nations doing this? putting a bounty on people. >> there are legal issues. we decided to treat this individual as a criminal. when you are overseas, that maybe what you have to do in order to get these people and bring to justice. i would never have that in u.s. hands -- i would rather have that in u.s. hands. >> i think george washington summed it up best. keep strong american borders and stay out of other countries squabbles. what ever happened to our christian ethics and foundation? >> the biggest change in american foreign-policy since the republic was founded was the creation of nato in 1947. it was the point in time the united states said they would engage in other countries in our national interest. the previous 165 years of american history avoided those kinds of commitments. you can make your own decisions if it was smart. i think it was wise myself. it was a significant change in the orientation of american international engagements. that has been true since 1947. 65 years we have been engaged that invol

favorably in the united states. this is a nation of immigrants but when immigration was largely cut off during the 1920's a lot of americans became estranged from the immigrant roots of their forebearers and lost the sense that we were a nation of immigrants. but in some parts of the country today you see the enormous vitality that comes with a really diverse and active population that attracts immigrants and the kind of zestfulness they add to a community like those in northern virginia or southern california or texas where i spent most of my adult life. so i'm not sure it's true that everybody has a negative attachment to immigration. but on the other hand, i think the political controversy about immigration much about undocumented immigrants has led people to a negative cast to immigration. i can tell you that the united states as well as europe and many other countries including eventually china because of our current demographic situation, we will turn to immigration increasingly because our ter tilt is approaching below replacement level so immigration will be a necessity. the chi

make it difficult for international scholars to come to the united states. we undercut our national imperative to be competitive. this came after a report by the national research council. the nation's research universities were at risk. congress asked the national academy to assess the competitive position of america's research universities and to answer the following question, what are the top 10 actions that congress, the federal government, the state governments, research universities, and other entities to ensure the ability for the american research university dementing excellence in research needed to help the united states to achieve national goals for health, energy, the environment, and security in the global community of the 21st century? the national research council is the working group of the national academy. they produce products that informed public opinion, shape policies, and advance the pursuit of engineering in madison. that question posed by congress is pretty complicated. the national research council leaders needed to put together a panel of leaders that repr
